He also was involved with the Selinsgrove Boy Scout troop in his earlier years.

Marvin enjoyed fishing, carpentry, woodworking, gardening and sports. He especially enjoyed spending time with his family.

Harned, of Papillion, Neb.; six grandchildren, Corey Hollenbach and his wife, Crystal, Lindsey Kurtz and her husband, John, Scott Harned, Joseph Gould, Daliss Gordon and Justin Humes; three great-grandchildren, Trinity, Trevin and Tori; and many nieces and nephews.
